As Mario Balotelli would say; it's because they're rich.

"The modus operandi was: there was an agreement between the bookies and a player that in a certain over they will give away a minimum amount of runs. The bookies also gave the players the directions. That they have to indicate they are ready to give away those runs. You rotate your watch or you put on your towel or you spend some time setting the field." - Neeraj Kumar
"These kind of indications were to be given by the players, following which they had to give way a minimum number of runs." - Neeraj Kumar
"First instance was the match between Pune Warriors and Rajasthan Royals on May 5, 2013. In this match, Chandila gave 14 runs in the second over of his spell. However, he forgot to give the predetermined signal. As a result of which, the bookies couldn't bet. This led to demands for refunds off Chandila. Twenty lakh was paid advance to him." - Neeraj Kumar
"Amit - the bookie - and Ajit's conversations. In this conversation, Chandila has told Amit which signals will he give. Ajit says let the first over go, and I will give the signal. Amit tells him bowl the first over confidently, and then bowl the next over for us."
"Ajit told him I will left my shirts, and then will look skywards before the over. That will be the indication. Chandila forgot to give the indication. He did give away those 14 runs, but forgot the indication."

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Now we are being shown the footage when he conceded 14 runs
Here's Cricinfo's commentary of that over:
"2.1 Chandila to Finch, 1 run, wide down the leg side, but he gets some bat on it, and takes a single to short fine
2.2 Chandila to Uthappa, FOUR, too straight with the fine leg up, and he has been swept away for four
2.3 Chandila to Uthappa, FOUR, too short, outside off, Uthappa backs away to make room and cut him in front of square for four
2.4 Chandila to Uthappa, no run, quicker delivery, skids on towards off, defended off the back foot
2.5 Chandila to Uthappa, 1 run, tossed up, middle and leg, driven to long-on
2.6 Chandila to Finch, FOUR, full, on the pads, and the leg-side field is up, and it has been swept away for four
On to the second match. 9th May 2013. Mohali. Royals v Kings XI Punjab
"In this match it was decided Sreesanth would put a towel on his trousers before the start of his second over, and give the bookies enough time for heavy booking."
"He asked for the towel before the second over. He went into warm-ups and stretching after that. And conceded 13"
"Jiju and another bookie talked that Sreesanth will give 14 or more in the second over. He won't do anything unusual, but before the start of the second over he will stick a towel at the front of his trousers."
"Bookie tells Jiju to explain to Sreesanth that the bookies will need time between the signal and the start of the over."
Cricinfo commentary of that over:And he was not asked to bowl another over in that match3.1 Sreesanth to Marsh, no run, short of length and that's been cut away to the off side, straight to the fielder
3.2 Sreesanth to Marsh, FOUR, drilled through extra-cover for a four, that's very full and while it did not come off the middle of the bat, it's hit in the gap and rushes away
3.3 Sreesanth to Marsh, no run, that's thrown up wide outside the off stump and he does get some bat on it, but not off the middle yet again and it goes to the fielder
3.4 Sreesanth to Marsh, 1 run, short ball, wants to pull it away but for the third time this over, the middle of the bat is missing, hits the top edge of the bat and lands at mid-wicket, there's no-one there and off for a single
3.5 Sreesanth to Gilchrist, FOUR, short again but Gilly is no Marsh, he gets the pull away and it's off the middle of the bat, pulled away for a four
3.6 Sreesanth to Gilchrist, FOUR, blasted back to the fence but it's not timed too well and still goes to the fence, fuller in length but it came slower than what Gilly expected, he had gone through with the shot and hits the toe end of the bat, Sreesanth pulls his hand out of the way and it rolls down to the fence
no surprise sreesanth couldn't give away the amount of runs he was supposed to
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES"The third match was last night, between Royals and Mumbai Indians. Here Chandila wasn't playing but he acted as a go-between Chavan and the bookies. He carried 60 lakhs... Chavan was asked to give at least 13 in the second over of his spell. He went for two in his first over. He was hit for a six off the first ball of his second over, then a two, then a six, and then controlled his bowling and gave away only one run."
put maxwell in gaol imo.
"Chandila motivated Chavan whole day long. He asked him repeatedly if it is okay. Chavan said 12 is too much, but was convinced to try. The indication was he will move the wrist ball, but 14 or more will be given in the second over whether it is powerplay or not, whether it is bowling first or second."
Cricinfo's commentary of the said over:
"We are not being played the evidence tapes, but the match footage"2.1 Chavan to Maxwell, SIX, short, slow and Maxwell's rocked back and smashed it over mid-wicket for a six, missed four, hit two
2.2 Chavan to Maxwell, 2 runs, and again, this was outside the off stump, was looking to hoick it away but not off the middle of the bat, couple of runs to the left of deep mid-wicket
2.3 Chavan to Maxwell, SIX, and now it's been smashed over the bowler's head for a six! it was fuller and Maxwell's tonking them away, over the bowler for a max!
2.4 Chavan to Maxwell, no run, shortens his length, on the middle stump and wants to cut it away, not off the middle to the short cover
2.5 Chavan to Maxwell, 1 run, and he is not holding back, was going down the track to smack it over the in-field, gets an inside edge that runs away to fine-leg for a single
2.6 Chavan to Tare, no run, quicker and flatter, patted to the off side and not for a run
Wow! This is bad.
Really surprised by Sreesanth's involvment (if there was) too. Unlike Chavan or Chandila he has earned plenty of money already.

Bookie: So, what plan today?
#Sreesanth: I'll get smashed for over 10 runs per over.
B: Ok. So, you'll bowl badly?
S: No, no. Normally.
interesting that the police seem to have waited until all 3 bowlers delivered their fixed over
"After the over, Chandila and Manan - a bookie - talk. Chandila asks him, 'Happy now?'. The bookie says yes. Chandila tells him the money shouldn't go directly to Chavan. Chandila wanted the money himself, and would then share it."
Tait denies any cash found in his room, "absolute rubbish"
Neeraj Kumar says: "Our teams were present at all the games so that we could keep an eye on the signals. Yesterday we got the clearance. In the early hours, the three were arrested, so were the bookies from different parts of the country. Sreesanth was arrested from Carter Road in Mumbai. Chandila in front of Intercontinental in Mumbai. Chavan at Triden. Amit Kumar, the bookie, was staying in room 336 of Intercontinental." - Neerak Kumar
"It was an information that we had. That the Mumbai underworld is indulging in spot-fixing and contacting a number of bookies and that some players are mixed up. We kept them under surveillance. The names of these three players came up, and we waited for a situation where all three could be pinned. It was only last night Chavan delivered on his promise." - Neeraj Kumar
"Cases under 420 and 120B have been registered." - Neeraj Kumar
He is asked if Shaun Tait is involved too. Neeraj Kumar says: "You'd be happy to know we have mno evidence against Shaun Tait. He is not involved."
